"Sen. Murkowski, Greenpeace Exchange Barbs Over EPA Regulations"

"Greenpeace and Sen. Lisa Murkowski's office are in a battle of words over her effort to block U.S. EPA from regulating greenhouse gases.

An aide to the Alaska Republican condemned Greenpeace yesterday after PolluterWatch, a project of the environmental group, launched a Web site called PolluterHarmony.com, a take-off on the matchmaking site eHarmony.com.

PolluterHarmony.com calls itself 'the #1 matchmaking site for polluters, industry lobbyists, & politicians!' and features a photo of Murkowski along with a video with a man who says he is a corporate lobbyist and is matched with 'Lisa,' who 'likes to stay up late at night and gut clean energy bills.' The man speaks in romantic tones about his match with Lisa, saying, 'It's been just magical.' A picture shows a man and woman holding hands as they walk."
